Form & Verdict

Most wins have come over a bit further, mainly round Wolverhampton, and never off a mark quite this high; latest effort on slow turf can be ignored and he'd been consistent before that but King Of York is perhaps his yard's most interesting runner.

Form & Verdict

Last eight wins have come over 7f on Tapeta and he's 6lb better off with Kath's Toyboy than when pushing him close over C&D last month; soft turf not ideal last time and, while he can pull hard and have issues at the stalls, he's considered.
